Yesterday was an interesting day- M had a HUGE poetry project. She had hers done and she spent the evening helping her friend - "Giving a sista a helping hand". Listening to M's advice, it was totally thrilling to hear her engaged in homework, using her very bright brain instead of hating on all-things- school.

Speaking of M, we have this thing going on. She's all into the song, Electric feel by MGMT.It's a catchy tune, however, a prominent lyric is "shock me like an electric eel" bahahahaaaaaaa!!! She says I am old and out of touch, I say using an electric eel as a lyric is ridiculous. What do you think??

Electric Feel Lyrics....
all along the western front
people line up to receive
she got the current in her hand
just shock you like you won't believe
sun in the amazon
with the voltage running through her skin
standing there with nothing on
she gonna teach me how to swim
i said ooh girl
shock me like an electric eel
baby girl
turn me on with your electric feel
i said ooh girl
shock me like an electric eel
baby girl
turn me on with your electric feel
all along the eastern shore
put your circuits in the sea
this is what the world is for
making electricity
you can feel it in your mind
oh you can do it all the time
plug it in, change the world
you are my electric girl
i said ooh girl
shock me like an electric eel
baby girl
turn me on with your electric feel
i said ooh girl
shock me like an electric eel
baby girl
turn me on with your electric feel
do what you feel now
electric feel now
do what you feel now
electric feel now
do what you feel now
electric feel now
do what you feel now
electric feel now
do what you feel now
electric feel now

Well, I really did it this time! I've been really pretty busy with my life lately- Dan and i both got new jobs within a week of each other, back on Labor Day. Dan has been working nights- leaving here about 1:30 pm and returning about 2:30 am... I get off work at noon three days a week, so we see each other then. However, from Sunday until Saturday the kids don't see him, and I am the sole parental unit/ driver. In all the excitement I let my web domain lapsed, and it was sniped by some company in Gibraltar!! ARRRRGHHH. I have started a new domain- I just left off the "A". I am frantically updating links and ending out notices... More to come...

Hey y'all... am I the suckiest blogger ever??? Last Summer at this time I was wonderful, dedicated- this summer I am a slacker. sigh.

Anyway, there were some requests (well, one...) for new pictures of my grandson Aden, superbaby. Here is my little dumpling. He's still a pretty serious guy- that's the way my youngest son James started out, and I think Aden takes after his Uncle James with his mighty strength and seriousness. (Although he looks like his daddy, my son Dan)

James was very serious, and I always thought he was taking it all in, filling up his memory card, his computer chip, and then when he felt like he had a handle on the world, he was ready to smile.

I am finally ready to smile after spending most of the day in bed yesterday with a yucky summer cold. I am starting to feel like I will survive...

I'm doing some readings, here's what's on my shuffle tonight...
Helpless- Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
Spy in the House of Love- Was(not was)
Seven Wonders- Fleetwood Mac (I still like Christine McVie better than Stevie)

First Day of My Life- Bright Eyes ( From my M...)
Open Arms- Tracy Chapman
Goo Goo Muck- The Cramps (Ahh, the music of my youth...)

Saturday morning and I am, typically, in bed. James' soccer game isn't until 11:00. Whoo hoo! I love a Saturday morning with a book, a cup of creamy coffee, and the house all quiet and gentle sounding around me. Birds are flitting around in the blooming lilac outside my window- it's like a Disney cartoon. (I am definitely not Snow White, I think I'd have to be one of those fairy godmothers. sigh...) Dan is off hunting for Morels. before the game...

I've got to stir though, readings to do... That's a good reason to stir. Take advantage of the sale. And here I go- hitting the Beyond. (I like to linger on the "Bed, Bath"... and am more reluctant about the "Beyond"... hehehe)

Saturday night- 7:30- doing readings and jamming with headphones- what's in my ears?
Jackson Browne- My Problem is you
Cheryl Wheeler- Ghandi/Buddha
Some Bob Schneider
Life is good.
